As the migrant crisis looms large over India with millions of workers stranded across the country due to the nationwide lockdown
to contain the spread of Covid-19, the states have been urging the Centre to take measures for their transportation.
A day after MHA allowed inter-state movement by buses for the stranded students, labourers, tourists, and pilgrims; Bihar, Punjab, Rajasthan, Kerala and Telangana urged the centre to run non-stop special trains 'keeping in view the large number of persons to be transported to a given destination'.
Meanwhile, the UP government has estimated to bring back nearly 1 million workers and deployed buses from states like Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat. Quarantine centres and shelter homes are also being readied for the returning migrants. The state govt has already brought back round 13,000 people from Haryana.
